After studying the roses at the Mills Rose garden in Syracuse, among other things, I believe this should be a highly recommended rose. 1) The fragrance is perfect, just what you hope and expect a rose to smell. 2) Hardy through severe exposed zone 5 winters. 3) The flowers are so sumptuous, rich, and romantic looking that you would make a perfect display with the flower alone, it needs nothing else. 4) The REPEAT. This is one of the only ones in the OGR section of the garden that has a very reliable repeat. Just like many of the Hybrid teas, there is a big display of blooms in June, and then a smattering through the rest of the summer, then when it cools in September you will have at least 5 branches with clusters of flowers continuing to bud and bloom. The form can be trained on pillar, but is a lovely stand alone shrub with arching branches all around to create that romantic fountain effect.

Excellent review & and I agree. I have 3 Comte de Chambord for that reason. As own-roots they are compact. What are other old garden roses' scents comparable to Comte? I have Duchess de Rohan and I'm considering buying Sidonie (damask perpertual) from High Country Roses .. I don't know if Sidonie can measure up to Comte in terms of scent. Thanks for any info.

Mme. Boll (Daniel Boll). Sent out by Mons. Boyeau, of Angers, France, in 1859. Growth vigorous; foliage very large and handsome, of a pale green color; spines numerous. Flowers large or very large; form flat; color carmine rose; a free autumnal bloomer and very hardy; perhaps the most hardy in the class. One of the most superb roses for the garden.

Mr. Boll, now deceased, who was by birth a Swiss, produced a number of seedling Hybrid Perpetuals of merit; several of these were sold to parties in France, who sent them out as their own. Among these was Mme. Boll. It would be interesting to know, whether any among them besides Mme. Boll, are now famous.
